Game time! We’ve sat through 82 regular-season games now and heard alllllllll about how LeBron James and the Miami Heat are the team to beat in the NBA. We’ve seen them go through their struggles (there’s no crying in basketball, fellas!), watched them dominate the league for stretches at a time, and heard just about everyone’s opinion on how well they will or won’t do in the playoffs this year.
Well, now it’s time to put up and shut up. And, as expected, King James is ready to put on a show. When he does, he’ll be wearing his new Nike LeBron 8 PS sneakers, which were designed exclusively for the NBA Playoffs and are the first signature sneaker to tap into Nike’s Hyperfuse technology. Check for them in stores this Saturday and watch LBJ rock them on the court when the Heat take on the Philadelphia 76ers in the first round of the playoffs this weekend. Game on.—Chris Yuscavage
